to overcome an object city national minority -- obstinate minority. cloture is needed, we're told, because members of the minority refuse to stop delaying. but does filing cloture hon a matter, be it a bill, amendment, or conference report, on the very same day the senate is considering that matter indicate a minority that is prolonging debate or does it indicate a majority that is eager not to have a debate at all? to me, a habitual effort to file cloture on a matter as soon as the senate begins to consider the matter indicates the latter. and what do the numbers show about the use of cloture by this democratic majority? according to c.r.s., the current senate majority has filed cloture on a amendmen a matter y same day it considered the matter three and a half more times than the senate republicans did it when they were in the majority. the current democratic majority has done so well over 100 times. to put it another way, senate democrats are much more apt to try to shut off debate on a matter as soon as the senate begins to consider a matter than were previous majorities, including mo

tragedies in small towns and big cities all across america every day. since friday morning a police officer was gunned down in memphis leaving four children without their mother. two officers were killed outside a grocery store in topeka. a woman was shot and killed inside a las vegas casino. three people were shot inside an alabama hospital. a 4-year-old was caught in a drive-by in missouri and taken off life support just yesterday. each one of these americans was a victim of the everyday gun violence that takes the lives of more than 10,000 americans every year. violence that we cannot accept as routine. so i will use all the powers of this office to help advance efforts aimed the at preventing more tragedies like this. we won't prevent them all, but that can't be an excuse not to try. it won't be easy, but that can't be an excuse not to try. i'm not going to be able to do it by myself. ultimately, if this effort is to succeed, it's going to require the help of the american people. it's going to require all of you you. if we're going to change things, it's going to take a wave of american
succeeded in pushing the army out of a lot of cities however that just means the army goes in with their artillery, their air force and destroys with whatever they can. the rebels for their part still badly outgunned are doing better, they are becoming more organized. they're getting weapons from qatar and other gulf countries to keep the pressure up on president assad. actions speak a whole lot louder than words here in the middle east. and one of syria's only allies, russia, has stood behind them at least in the diplomatic speak but we just learned russia is sending warships to off the syrian coast there in the mediterranean sea potentially to evacuate russian civilians if things continue to deteriorate inside syria. which does tell you, jenna, people inside syria and also inside the russian government are making at least contingency plans for the demise of the assad regime. jenna. jenna: we'll continue to watch it. level land, thank you. jon: one of hollywood's biggest stars expected to testify today on capitol hill. so what do you think brings ben affleck to washington?
these rebels have not been able to control major cities. they haven't taken aleppo. certainly have not taken the capital damascus. as things on the ground are shifting we're getting more and more indications, russia, syria's key ally are getting nervous. they moved warships in the mediterranean to conceivably evacuate russian citizens into syria in things continue to deteriorate. there is question of chemical weapons. will assad use his chemical weapons in a last act of desperation? or will the rebels seize control. you have a lot of chemical weapons in the hands of many without command-and-control structures. martha: much of the chaos in syria but a little bit of order for rich around engel and his crew. thank you very much. bill:. government's cash problems come closer to a possible resolution a report on the staggering amount of money the government spends and whether or not that is sustainable. martha: as the funerals continue today for the connecticut school shooting victims there are new questions about how we can better address this serious mental health issues that have led to these
day in inner city neighborhoods, a child gets shot. and it doesn't make the news. that's in every one of those neighborhoods. we never talk about it. i think this is bringing it to our attention because it's neighborhoods like we live in, right? and that bothers me that suddenly society becomes gripped when you have a much bigger ongoing tragedy. i think that says something about our mentality. and you know, i actually think that's why we have a constitution. because, it's when you have tragedies, and when emotion is running high, that you actually need a break to step back from the emotion and think about what's going on. >> wait a second. some of the things that have been proposed have been simply bringing back a ban on assault rifles that was brought here in 1994. >> which the justice department studied and found it was ineffective. you know, sure if we want to do it, that's fine. it passed the constitutional test. but, i don't think that is going to solve our problem. >> it may not solve the problem. it may not have stopped this situation. but it would certainly have some impact.
